All the Angels Stood by Laura J. Marshall is a story that revolves around Staci Schofield. Staci is going through an unhappy phase in her life which makes her want to end it on her birthday, which falls on Monday. Rush, a school mate becomes her friend and he tries to help her overcome her difficulties. But will he be able to succeed and help her? Or will he able to change her thoughts and channel them towards the Lord? It is a story that is relevant and it brings to light the emotional problems faced by many teenagers in today's society.

The author has written a short but powerful story which reiterates the power and presence of the Lord. It is a story that is relevant and we do hear about many teenagers going through depression. The book ends on a positive note with emphasis on the Lord and His presence and guidance in our daily lives. There are times in life where we change the course of our thoughts and move towards the Lord.

I liked the writing style. It is simple yet very strong and powerful. It is a good book for all teens and also parents who have teenage children to read. It is a fast paced novella and readers will not put it down until the story is complete. The positive turn in the story makes it an uplifting read.
